We were delighted with the warmth of the owner's welcome, the equipment throughout the house, the location of the property and all its equipment. It was lovely and cosy - very necessary as we had Arctic winds and snow! The property was spacious and very tastefully furnished. We would love to go back. There is plenty to see and do in the area and beautiful countryside.

A lovely open plan cottage which suited my family very well. The cottage is decorated and kitted out to a very high standard. In a great location to access many interesting places in the North East of England.

This was one of the most enjoyable holidays we have had, in a idyllic location set between the beautiful coastline of Northumberland and the Cheviot Hills. The setting was quiet with wonderful nature all around. The owners were so welcoming and the cottage was superb in every way. Everything was perfect, and we felt very sad to leave such a wonderful place. The only positive thing about leaving is that we can return, and hope to do so very soon.

Beautiful cottage, lovely area, courteous and gracious hosts. What more could anyone want from a U.K holiday? I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Sawmill Cottage.

The cottage was absolutely spotless when we arrived. The property has been beautifully restored, is very spacious and comfortable. It is extremely peaceful and quiet at night. The owners have thought of several nice touches. The beds are nice and comfy. The owners are very friendly and accommodating but not intrusive.

We have just returned from a lovely family weekend at Saw mill cottage, despite awful weather we were warm and toasty in the beautifully equipped property. Home made scones with jam and cream were very welcoming .

Just back from a week in this fantastic cottage, I never write reviews but felt I had to let people know what an outstanding property this is. It wants for nothing and the standard of decor and finishing is superb, the owners are close by and are very friendly and willing to help any way they can but are happy to leave you to Your own devices. Close by to loads of lovely places and beeches and only a short trip from Alnwick castle and gardens which are superb for a day out. We will definitely return here in the future

This cottage is a wonderful escape from the busy routine of life. The cottage is set beside woodland, a stream, and fields, with a short stroll to see the wonderful Northumberland coastline and the historic Lindisfarne Castle on Holy Island. The Old Sawmill is a superb cottage, with attention to every detail, and comfort being a priority. Bill and Jane, who own the cottage, are welcoming and accommodating, and any query is never too much trouble. I could not recommend this cottage highly enough, and we look forward to returning at the earliest opportunity. Thank you for letting us be able to share this magical place. John, Helen and William.
